easyJet launches Fearless Flyer Course

Published: 14 May 2013

easyJet, the UK’s largest airline and biggest operator from London Luton Airport, is launching a Fearless Flyer Course to help people conquer their phobia of flying in an aeroplane.

Led by Channel 4’s 'Fear of Flying' host, Lawrence Leyton, who has a remarkable record in helping fearful flyers, the course will last approximately 3 hours and will be held on 16 May in Watford. A dedicated easyJet Fearless Flyer flight will take off from London Luton Airport on 18 May to help the participants overcome their fear. 

Approximately one in six people has a fear of flying. Some passengers feel uncomfortable throughout the flight, but for others their fear prevents them from travelling on a plane altogether. To help nervous passengers overcome these fears, easyJet has teamed up with leading experts to offer the ‘Fearless Flyer’ course to complete the participants’ transformation from nervous passengers to Fearless Flyers. 

easyJet’s Fearless Flyer course costs £179 including the Experience Flight from London Luton Airport and participants can also take a companion with them on the flight for just £69. To book a place on one of these courses or to register for future courses at other locations please visit
